Association Chrysalide

Association Chrysalide is our main local partner in Algiers.

Association Chrysalide is a non-profit organisation based in Algiers. Since its inception in 2000, the organisation is dedicated to supporting, promoting and disseminating diversity in the arts in Algeria.

It aims to defend research in multidisciplinary areas through combining film, theater and visual arts, and support Algerian writers, directors and visual artists

Created and directed by authors and filmmakers, Association Chrysalide is a platform which provides the structures to elaborate creative approaches and to assist creators in Algeria.
It also encourages writing practices and contemporary creative processes, while always baring in mind pedagogical approaches.
